March 24th 2003 : The unseeded Australian won a marathon 2 1/2 hour encounter 6/7-7/6-6/3 to set up a showdown with Agassi, the world number two who is seeking his third successive title here. Philippoussis struck 23 aces on his way to victory over Enqvist and used his trademark booming serve to full effect, winning 83 per cent of his first-serve points. "It was a tough match out there today and a good one to get through," said Philippoussis, who squandered a 5-2 lead in the first-set tiebreak.
March 22nd 2003 : Mark is marching onward at the Nasdaq-100 with a 7/6-6/4 win over Ferdando Gonzalez. He next meets Enqvist in round 3. Good luck Scud !!!!
March 20th 2003 : Mark Philippoussis blasted down 16 aces on his way to a 7/6-6/4 victory over Fernando Lopez of Spain and afterwards declared himself pleased with his progress since a knee injury at last year's US Open forced him to miss the rest of the year. Philippoussis, who spends time surfing near his new California home to help build his leg muscles back up, fancies his chances of a prolonged run in the tournament if his strength holds up.
